Where and When
The Forex Expo 2022 took place at the Parklane Hotel in Limassol, Cyprus, on the 31st of March 2022. On the heels of the iFX EXPO Dubai 2022, which took place in February 2022, this event is the second most prestigious.
The luscious location, elegantly equipped to welcome the heads of finance worldwide, had prepared a packed schedule of keynotes, conferences, workshops, speeches, and several fun activities meant to engage the numerous audience.
Prioritizing the passing of relevant knowledge onto figures with a tangible impact on the financial sphere, the Forex Expo 2022 is one of the best places in the world when it comes to networking opportunities. It is the perfect breeding ground for new and innovative business ideas and proposals, and anyone – experienced or novice – has a chance to strike a special business deal.
Of course, when it comes to events such as this one, the stakes are high for both organizing and sponsoring it. The main sponsors are important and influential institutions in the world of finance, and this year there were three of them – two Gold sponsors and one Grand sponsor.
The two Gold Sponsors for the 2022 Forex Expo were AdRoll, an advertising platform with a staggering reputation, and NAGA, a platform for social investment. The single Grand Sponsor was MetaQuotes, a name well-known to everyone in the business.
MetaQuotes is a software development company that focuses primarily on business and finance-associated apps, concerned, specifically, with hedge funds, banks, brokerages, etc.
These three names alone were enough to guarantee the importance of the event.
Participants, Speakers, and Organizers
Regularly attended by the pinnacle of the B2B community, the Forex Expo is organized by Finexpo. This entity makes it a priority to establish an influence as vast as possible all across the globe. It creates events in countries such as Thailand, South Africa, Egypt, Russia, the US, the Philippines, Ukraine, Singapore, etc.
Aside from being regularly attended by the important people in the business, this year, some of the participants included the Head of Global Business at MetaQuotes, Christoforos Theodoulou, and the Head of Operations at MetaQuotes, Tony Spyrou.
NAGA’s founder and CEO, Benjamin Bilski, alongside AdRoll’s Bram de Jonge, CoinAvalon’s Aris Ioannou, XValley Technologies Ltd.’s Andreas Livadiotis, and GRS’s Ron Pittman was also present.
Additionally, Xenia Neophytou, Andreas Mathikolonis, Donna Stephenson, Natalie Mastoroudes, and Eleni Aslani were also speaking on behalf of their conglomerate corporations. With more than 500 participating companies worldwide, like J.P. Morgan, Vantage FX, Pepperstone, KKHolding, and eBOS, the Forex Expo 2022 was a massive success.
Keynotes and Topics With an Impact
Of course, only having a few big names won’t make an event successful. It’s highly significant for this type of event to preset topics that can bring value to all participants.
For the 2022 Forex, a variety of recently relevant topics were planned and discussed, including the status of the Forex Expo itself, the difficulty of organizing it, and ensuring that it’s successful. Moreover, more general topics such as decentralized technology integration, digital marketing trends, and the establishment of new digital currencies were also brought up.
Other relevant topics included:
- the discussion of the current state of HR and marketing;
- the financial viability of Cyprus;
- various changes regarding laws and regulations related to investments;
- the relationship between investing and social media;
- the possibilities offered by omnichannel marketing, and more.
These were all followed by a relaxed evening, which allowed the participants to mingle and discuss all of the keynotes with each other and the most relevant finance trends for the year. It gave them a chance to unveil the newest improvements in the field and plan for potential future endeavors.
As such, Forex Expo, once again, established its relevance in the world of finance.
